For the first time on EPL EggHeads we are happy to announce that we will now offer our readers PSL previews and tips for all your local football action! Our writer – “ The Left Winger” – will certainly you get through that betting slip on the local front!
Maritzburg United v Cape Town City
A stimulating match up to kick off this weekend’s fixtures. The form book will tell you that Maritzburg are a tough nut to crack at home, especially on a Friday night where they’ve gone over a dozen matches unbeaten. City head coach Jan van Riebeeck (Jan Olde Riekerink) seems to have settled at the Cape colony now however and they are coming off two successive wins.
Golden Arrows v SuperSport United
Don’t expect goals or too much thrills and spills from this encounter. SuperSport are coming off a good 3-0 victory over Baroka whilst Arrows succumbed 0 – 1 in the last minute to Chiefs in their last one.
Prediction: 0 – 1
Highlands Park v Baroka
Highlands are having a shocker run at the moment with 3 losses on the trot. Baroka are that team that pop with unexpected results at random times, so they’re unpredictable at best. Highlands coach Owen “Rubber Doll” da Gama has vowed that “someone will pay” for their bad run and I reckon this is the game he bounces back.
Prediction: 2 – 0
Chippa United v Orlando Pirates
New Pirates coach Josef “JZ” Zinnbauer has got the fans rocking and dancing even more than the other JZ gets his supporters going in the stadiums. Not the 99 problems JZ, the other guy. Wait, is that the same guy? In the last 5 matches between these two, Pirates have won all 5. Bank on the latest German General in the PSL to bring his machine gun approach and mow down Chippa.
Prediction: 0 – 2
Black Leopards v Stellenbosch
Stellies have picked up 3 successive wins to climb up to an impressive 8th on the log but a trip to sweltering Limpopo might turn their grapes sour. Leopards are in disarray on a 7 match winless streak and have “suspended” Head Coach Cavin Johnson, installing Allan Clark but will he have enough time to change their spots?
Prediction: 1 – 1
AmaZulu v Polokwane City
This is a classic bottom-of-the-table clash: AmaZulu (16th) are on a 5 match winless streak and Polokwane (15th) are 4 matches without a W. Needless to say, they both struggle to score goals as well. The home team have netted just 11 in 20 matches, with 16 for the visitors. Perhaps the toughest match of them all to call but take Usuthu to sneak it.
Prediction: 1 – 0
